Three-time Pro Bowl tight end Mark Chmura has been chosen for the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, according to Jason Wilde at ESPN Milwaukee.
We think that’s awesome because Chmura pretty much likes the same things we like – football, booze, young girls… well, we don’t like them that young.
Chmura played seven seasons with the Packers. In his career he recorded 188 receptions for 2,253 yards and 17 touchdowns. His best season came in 1995, when he caught 54 balls for 679 yards and seven touchdowns. He made the Pro Bowl in 1995, 1997 and 1998. Chmura was All Pro in 1995 and 1998.
And then there was that pesky arrest.
In 2000, Chmura was accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with a minor – the babysitter of his children to be exact – at a post-prom party. He was acquitted, but the Packers released him after his arrest and Chmura wouldn’t play another down of professional football. His career was over at age 30.
To this day, I can’t fathom what an NFL player would be doing partying with a bunch of high school kids. Well, actually, I have an idea why he was there, but still. Mark Chmura threw it all away for some jailbait.
But this isn’t about that.
Chmura may not be the brightest guy, but he was a hell of a tight end and played on some great Packers teams. His induction into the Packers Hall of Fame is well deserved.
